Orders on the papers

Practitioners are encouraged to submit orders on the papers to the Commercial Registry as early as possible, prior to any hearing. This allows orders to be processed without requiring the attendance of the parties' practitioner.

Guidelines for submitting correspondence and consent orders, and requests for directions hearings can be found in the directions group guidelines 2016 document.

A standard set of consent orders is available in the 2018 orders booklet – Commercial Division.
